Hi! I'm Pip Karl and I started McKenzie House in 2012 to offer excellent quality, NZ made interior furnishings online.
I am an independent furnishings specialist and interior stylist. After more than 20 years as a designer, specifier and maker in the interiors industry I have the knowledge, expertise and industry connections to be able to help you create the furnishings you really want.
I love supporting the amazing skill and expertise that we have here in Aotearoa NZ so I only use local workrooms and manufacturers. My team of talented makers and I are ready to turn your ideas into reality.
I look forward to working with you!
You design and measure it. We make it.
The Custom Made Design Space guides you from start to finish through the measure, design and purchase of your new, beautifully made curtains, blinds and other furnishings.
You can get a quote for just one item or furnishings for an entire project.
Delivery available anywhere in NZ.
You don't need to have anything made by us.
McKenzie House has an extensive selection of fabrics available to purchase via this website. The fabric will be sent directly to you.
Simply buy from the fabric shop or browse through the websites of my suppliers and email me to place an order.
If you need help working out how much fabric you need, email me - I'm happy to work it out for you.
Once you've chosen what you'd like on each window or door you can upload your house plans for a quote.
It suits our casual Kiwi lifestyle and can be used in modern or traditional homes alike.
Particularly suited to homes with large windows and doors, the light, easy look of sheer curtains has become even more popular in recent years.
Sheer curtains can be used in a variety of ways - to add softness and daytime privacy over blockout roller blinds, on a double track with a separate lining behind - or simply on their own.
Sheer fabrics come in a vast array of textures, shades and patterns. If you like this look browse through the options below.
So do I!
One of the most environmentally-friendly fabrics available, linen is simply stunning.
Available in a huge range of colours and designs, there is a linen to suit every situation.
Browse through the linens in the shop to find the perfect one for your project.
Many of the customers I've worked with over the years have been either setting up a nursery for the arrival of their new baby or redecorating a room for an older child.
Whether you're looking for a fabric for your newborn or your ten year old, you'll find plenty of options in the McKenzie House fabric shop.
Old pieces of furniture that have seen better days can be completely transformed with some new fabric and the skill of my craftsman upholsterer.
Whether you have an old favourite, a treasured find in a second-hand shop or a piece you've been given, an upholstery makeover will give it a new lease of life for many years to come.
McKenzie House can look after the whole process for you - from sourcing fabric and quoting for the upholstery to picking it up and delivering it back to you (Auckland area only).
